Give this veggie a New American spin by flavoring it with fresh lime butter instead of the usual Asian spices. Grill the bok choy for crispy leaves and stalks that are tender. Baby bok choy is more tender than regular-sized bok choy, but if you can only find regular-sized bok choy, increase the grilling time to 7 to 8 minutes per side. The difference between baby and regular bok choy is that the baby bok choy is harvested earlier, which produces smaller leaves. It's also sweeter than regular bok choy. Serve bok choy as a side to grilled steak.
